FOREWORD 



Like the first, the present edition of the 
Directory of Charitable and Social Service 
Organizations and Institutions is published 
for the use of social workers and laymen. 
Since the first edition was issued, new 
agencies have sprung up and the old ones 
have undergone various changes, making a 
revision absolutely necessary. 

In this directory the agencies are listed 
under the various functions that they per- 
form in order that it may be easy for any 
one interested in a case needing special 
attention to get at the agency which can 
best handle it. The Index at the end of 
the directory is arranged alphabetically so 
as to facilitate looking up any organization 
or institution about which information is 
desired. 

We have endeavored to include in this 
edition all the welfare agencies in Manila

and vicinity that we know of, but new 
agencies may have been organized since we 
last made the survey. The Office of the 
Public Welfare Commissioner will be glad 
to have its attention called to existing 
agencies that are not found in this directory, 
in order that it may include them in the 
next edition. 

Jose Fabella, 
Public Welfare Commissioner.
